Winter is hanging on by a thread and I’ve officially got cabin fever. Let’s face it, there’s only so much housework I can stand at once and I’ve run out of TV show marathons on Netflix. So what’s a girl to do when the temperatures remain below zero for days on end? I got crafty… or rather, Betty’s Customs got crafty and I’m here to tell you all about it.
Every horse seems to have at least three names: the “real” one, the barn one, and that special one. What are some of your pony’s names?
Well Beka, you and I are on the same page! All of my animals have numerous names… from proper full names, to nicknames. So I thought I’d not only share my equine’s monikers with you, but my dog’s as well!
I’ve been in a bit of a winter funk lately, which is part of the reason I haven’t been blogging as much. My riding schedule has been extremely inconsistent due to the weather and even when I do get to ride I haven’t felt like myself. I’m not riding terribly, but I’m not riding well either; Miles hasn’t been bad, but he’s not been great. Are you seeing a theme yet? However this weekend Ohio was graced with temperatures in the 40’s and 50’s with sunshine that not only melted the snow, but helped me get rid of my funk as well.
I’ve been reading Aimee’s blog SprinklerBandits for a few years now and I really admire her candor, sense of humor and her adorable bay OTTB, Courage. I was really honored when she asked me to participate in her series Ammy Hour, which highlights working adult amateurs like myself and our adventures with horses. So make sure to check out my interview on SprinklerBandits!
[Get it? Hops?? You know, the plant that gives flavor to beer? Haha, I crack myself up!]
It seems that my Weigh-In Wednesday post has inspired many of you to declare your fitness goals for this year, as well as share what’s worked for you. I’ve really enjoyed reading about everyone’s individual journeys, so I added a LinkUp to my first post. Unfortunately the free version of InLinkz only allows you to keep a blog hop open for 30 days, so I’ll create a new one each month for everyone to utilize. I think it’s awesome to share so much collective knowledge, as well as encourage each other to stick with it!
In the same vein, I got tons of comments on my “Day in the Life” blog last week, requesting that it be turned into a blog hop. Your wish is my command! I’ve added a LinkUp there too, so I expect to hear about daily routines and how ya’ll manage your busy lives. I also have a fun topic for later in the week for another blog hop — so watch out, I think you’ve created a monster!
